    Why would you say that?

    Eric: What does she think of you then?
    Harry: To be honest, I think she's avoiding only me, but not others.
    Eric: In that case, I think she likes you, too.
    Harry: Why would you say that?

    Why did Harry say "Why would you say that?"
    I think he should have said "Why did you say that?".

    No. He's talking about possible motivation for a fact ("what might be the reason for your saying that?), not about the fact itself.
